The American Jewish community, in its aid given to world Jewry, has actualized the statement that all Jews are bound together (kol yisrael areivim zeh bah zeh). Where it has done less well is fostering debate and dialogue about the issues facing Israel, which underlie a deep commitment to the Jewish State. Today's challenge is to mobilize the American Jewish community to meet its global responsibilities while continuing to create communities of inspiration and caring.
